Fairy Falls is a multi-tiered cascade, located in the central part of Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. The falls consist of several tumbling tiers toward the top and a few smaller plunges in between before the final large slanting drop at the base in azure-colored waters.
Fairy Falls are located 40-50min from Auckland city center with a fairly easy access.
There is a car park on Scenic Drive that serves as a starting point for the walking track. This track is well maintained and takes about 50 mins there and back. The stairs are long.
Free access to view the falls.
